2019 Summer Fashion Trends

Now that many of us are emerging from our winter cocoons and getting ready to enjoy the summer weather, we’re trying to choose the right outfits—however, if you’re one to keep up with the trendiest outfits, you might be wondering what looks are in style this summer.

Fortunately, we’ve got the scoop for you! Below are the top summer outfits that will be trending this year.

Tie-Dye

No, you haven’t been transported back to the ’70s, tie-dye is making a comeback this summer in a big way.

From the traditional shirts, tops, and dresses, to jeans and denim, to even shoes, tie-dye colors are taking over—the soft, pastel colors can work as an aesthetic addition to an outfit without being too overpowering.

R13, Prada, Proenza Schouler, and Stella McCartney have all been inspired to bring back the totally “tubular” look.

Bike Shorts

You don’t have to be preparing for the Tour de France to rock a pair of bike shorts this year. It might sound strange, but if Chanel does it, then it’s legit, right?

Whether it’s with a blazer for a chic, business-casual look, or with a form-fitting sweater for that athleisure look, bike shorts can work with most outfits—you can even get daring and spice things up with a leather pair.

Fringe

Whether it’s hanging from a crop top, skirt, dress, or even the straps of that new summer bikini top, the fringe will be taking over this summer.

Designers such as Tom Ford, Marcel Ostertag, and Oscar de la Renta have all taken the classic western adornment and brought a modern spin to it that is building steam among the fashion-forward.

Animal Print

Designers: Roberto Cavalli, Burberry, Gucci, and Tom Ford are all experimenting with various animal prints that will help you unleash your inner big-cat energy with leopard, and cheetah prints—you can even go bolder with zebra and snakeskin prints.

Print Mashups

The eclectic look is in this season, thanks to Paco Rabanne print mashup fever is taking over and offers the chance to make a bold statement with your outfit.

Dots, stripes, plaid, floral—the best part of print mashups is you can literally match anything with anything (although there is a true art to doing it well).

Feathers

Even a birdbrain could figure out feathers are IN this year, thanks to designers including Marc Jacobs, Oscar de la Renta, Loewe, and Gucci

Whether as a lining at the hem of a shirt, or the cuff of a pair of pants, or even an accent to a pair of shoes.

Spots

Thanks to Carolina Herrera, Celine, Prada, and Jacquemus spots are taking over—from a polka-dotted top to a 50’s-inspired, spotted skirt, to a spotted summer dress, you can find a look that fits almost any occasion.

Bermuda Shorts

The perfect look for when it’s too hot for pants but too cold for short shorts. Bermuda shorts are in this summer thanks to designers like Anna Sui.

Plus, the soft, pastel colors are easy to match most outfits, and look great at the beach or on the boat!
